Afternoon Tea Blueberry Scones


2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
1/2 cup buttermilk
6 Tbsp cold butter, small dice
2 handfuls of blueberries
2 Tbsp melted butter
powdered sugar


Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
In a bowl, using a hand mixer, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
Add in the cold butter and continue to mix until the butter becomes incorporated and the pieces are about the size of peas.
Stir in the blueberries just to coat with the dry mixture.
In a measuring cup mix together the buttermilk and egg. Pour into the dry ingredients and stir with a spoon until the dry ingredients are mostly incorporated.
Pour the dough out onto a very lightly floured surface {too much flour will leave you with a heavy dense scone}. Gently press together to form into a round about 1 1/2 inches high.
Cut into 6 even triangles. Place onto a parchment lined baking sheet and brush with some of the melted butter.
Bake for approx 22-24 minutes or until lightly golden. Remove from the oven and brush again with melted butter.
Allow to cool then dust with powdered sugar.


Scones are absolutely fantastic!!! They are similar to a biscuit; lightly sweetened and perfect for breakfast or to enjoy with an afternoon cup of coffee or tea. These Blueberry Scones rise beautifully while they bake and have such a wonderful crumbly texture. When you bite into the scone and that blueberry bursts in your mouth, its just heaven! My favorite way to eat these scones is to slice them in half and toast them in a pan with a little bit of butter. Make yourself a latte, espresso or cup of tea and savor each and every delicious bite.
